Well done for trying! The eefs are meant to be difficult to follow, they would not work if they were easy. Just do your best and keep trying to hang on to memories and tap in synch as best you can. Do the rating 0-10 any way. Just let a number come to mind and trust it. You are after all speaking to yourself.
You will know when things have changed for you. Those early experiences do not just affect your current reactions to other angry people but they made you feel inferior, less important, have less worth etc. and still do.
